I have a challenge for you, but you have to be brave. Occasionally, my outfit group has a challenge where you are supposed to let someone else choose your outfit, it could be a spouse, significant other, child, pet, friend, a rock… whatever. The first time that I told my husband about this challenge, his eyes got really big, and he very slyly asked if he got to pick my ENTIRE outfit… men, am I right? Needless to say I was nervous about what he would choose for me because he seemed more interested in picking out my undergarments then dressing me in something that I could actually be seen in out in public. Here’s his first attempt from probably last spring. He wanted me to wear the dress on the left, but the weather didn’t cooperate.
So, he had to try again. The middle photo is my reaction to the first shirt that he had chosen to go with this maxi skirt……shudder… I mean there was no way that I was leaving the house wearing that combo. Actually, I think that I gave this shirt away immediately following this challenge. Gave me bad nightmares. I finally convinced him to choose something else, and we ended up with the outfit on the right.
But that was then, and surely if we tried this again, he’d be slightly better at it…
The challenge came up again a few weeks ago and so he got another shot at dressing me. This time he was very serious. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him stand in my closet staring at my clothes for as long as he did this time. I informed him that the rest of my clothes were in the dresser… you know important things like pants. Finally he chose an olive green utlitly style jacket, a black shirt and he requested I find a pair of jeans.
Me- “for the jeans… holes or no holes?”
Him- “I know you love holes in your jeans, but I think for this outfit, no holes”
LOL. Oh so now he’s Mr. Style. So here’s what he came up with. Not bad, Mr. Style, not bad.
As for shoes, I’m happy that it was a warmish day, because these aren’t really “winter” shoes. I’m pretty sure he chose them because he knows I’ve been dying to wear them. #husbandgoals #hegetsme.
Today, I challenge you to let someone else choose your outfit, I’d LOVE to see the outcome. My ootd outfit group has this challenge coming up again soon, so I will post an update to see if he’s improved.
